      High autonomy at work if you can deliver. Generally fun and challenging work. Flexible work hours, sports hours etc. Nice working environment.

      High bureaucracy that stands between technical solutions to real ops users. Sometimes management doesn’t understand the technical challenges. Career progression is not very fast for general employees.

      Honestly one of the best place for scientific & engineering work in Singapore

      Oct 19, 2015 - Anonymous Employee

      Pros

      Engineers and scientists are highly valued in DSO. In fact, you'll meet some of the best in Singapore here. Staff usually gets autonomy to get the job done. The company is also supportive to training and skills development. For staff with good performance, there are (very) generous postgraduate scholarship schemes available (Masters and PhD).

      Cons

      Some areas of work are niche and less marketable outside. Career progression is based on evidence of delivering value, which takes time and so can be more conservative compared to non-engineering/scientific jobs.
